DRM is the "new black" for the new age!

This sucks. One of the worst offenders: GTA4. Install with Steam, activate with Rockstar Club, save game with Windows Live.

Wrong example though, it's a F2P game ported from mobile, it has an expiration date written all over it so it'll be eventually forgotten. Let's talk about FF12TZA using Denuvo maybe...

I can understand the need for DRM on expensive titles, but it should only attempt to validate ONCE (probably per update). After that, it should just validate when it can and ignore when it can't connect to a server.
